Have Spurs found a striker at last?

Spurs may have finally found the striker that they have been looking for all summer.

Having been linked with a host of names to fill the role of back-up to Harry Kane, they are now closing in on a loan move for Benfica striker Carlos Vinicius. Any agreement is likely to agree an option to buy for £36 million.

The 25-year old joined Benfica from Napoli just a year ago in a £15 million deal, and had a strong first season in Portuguese football, scoring 24 goals for the Primeira Liga side in all competitions.

He has a release clause of £89 million, but financial constraints mean that Benfica are willing to compromise. Not only are they suffering the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, but they have also made an early exit form this year’s Champions League.

Vinicius can also play on the left-side of the attack and should relieve some of the burden on Kane.
